Hampshire Cricket History

Hampshire’s Week (so far)

It’s clear that Hampshire are most effective in crucial T20 matches when using a runner – maybe it should be a regular feature from now!

T20 UPDATE: Thursday morning

I have compiled a table of T20 achievements over the first ten years by all 18 counties. I have awarded 2 points for losing quarter finals, 4 for losing semi finals, 6 for losing Finals and 8 for winning overall

2012 is obviously not complete but if I take it to this stage today with Losing Finalist and Winner to be increased, Leicestershire are the most successful county overall although Somerset will overtake them if they win in 2012. Hampshire are one of the most improved after just one Quarter Final in the first six years while conversely, Surrey who began by winning the Trophy, then losing a Final, then losing two consecutive Semi Finals have not qualified in the past six years. Lancashire have the best record of any side yet to win the Trophy – there have been six winners, including three in this year’s final. If Hampshire win this year they will finish third equal on my system, level with Lancashire and behind Somerset and Leicestershire.

It’s an interesting thought that if City-Based Franchises are ever introduced Leicestershire would be very unlikely to host one.
